Switching from InVision Sync to Craft Sync

Syncing with Craft allows you to utilize the power of Inspect, enjoy different ways to collaborate, and sync in a fraction of the time. InVision Sync and Craft Sync process your source files differently, and migrating from InVision Sync to Craft Sync requires a few simple steps to make the switch.
 
First, stop syncing with InVision Sync and save your source files in a different folder.
 
  1. From your computer menu bar, click the in icon and choose Open InVision Sync Folder.

2. Comb through each folder and move any files you’d like to keep into a local or remote directory.
 
Note: We recommend making two copies of these files in case of data loss, as your source files are not recoverable by InVision. 
 
Then, disconnect and uninstall InVision Sync. 
  1. From your computer menu bar, click the in icon and choose Quit InVision Sync.
  2. Drag the application from your Applications folder into the trash, and empty your trash.
 
Finally, set up Craft Sync. 
  1. Download and install Craft.
  2.  Setup Craft Sync and change the density setting to 1x, if you’ve been exporting in InVision Sync at 1x. Craft Sync’s export density is 2x by default.

Note: Craft Sync uses your artboards to sync updates quickly and does not sync your entire source file to a prototype.

 
Why are my hotspots smaller after making the switch to Craft Sync? 
When switching from InVision Sync to Craft, InVision Sync defaults to an export density of 1x, and Craft Sync exports at 2x by default. To fix this, change your export density to 2x in Craft Sync.

In Sketch, click the cogwheel at the top right of your Craft Sync plugin to open the settings modal. From here, you’ll be able to log out, change the export density of your screens, or send us feedback.
 
Photoshop settings
Select your export pixel density (1x or 2x) from the main Craft Sync screen.

Selecting a density will export the artboard at the selected density. If 2x is selected, a 500x500 artboard will be exported and uploaded at twice the size (1000x1000), but displayed in your prototype at 500x500. Alternatively, you can export at 1x.
 
Sketch’s density setting will up-res the image and Photoshop’s density setting just allows you to define at what density you designed the artboard.
